michelle obama and up there in her box and they were saluted by the president by their courage in speaking out in the wake of her tragic murder and the president used her death as well as the deaths of others who have been gunned down with her, via newtown, connecticut, aurora, colorado to make a push for gun control. take a listen. >> hadiya's parents, are in the chamber along with two dozen americans whose lives have been torn apart by gun violence. they deserve a vote. >> they deserve a vote. he was pushing for a vote on gun control. if you look at the numbers in terms of homicides and the strong gun control in the year in the city of chicago, take a listen to this, 41 shooting related murders this year and 809 guns seized nine times the new york of new york city. and last year, over 900 shootings in the president's home towns and 7400 guns seized. and that's why he could be having an uphill climb in washington trying to get a ban on assault weapons although they're confident inside the white house that there's going to be bipartisan support for universal background checks, something we
michelle obama also grew up. so, you see this whole story of a national problem also melts into very much the personal story of the obamas in chicago, which is a reason why i think mrs. obama and senior adviser valerie jarrett came back to chicago last saturday to attend the funeral of 15-year-old hadiya pendleton, because they felt such a personal connection. it is that connection, i think, the city wants from the president. even if he doesn't have any new proposals today, he's going to talk about some of the high schools in chicago he thinks are doing things right, but if he has any message at all that can help resonate or can help stop what's happening or give some new tools to the mayor, all that will be incredibly welcomed, chris. >> well, the communities here say they have never needed the help more, even though the mayor here now, rahm emanuel, who, of course, worked for the president, president clinton, he says the numbers are going down, things are getting better here. but in the community, the concern they say, has never been more acute, they believe once again they're in a cycl

there with michelle obama in the gallery during the state of the union. bill: that is true, but most people thought it was talking about sandy hook. and newtown. >> you're asking me, bill, is he talking about protecting our children, american children, i think -- and clearly, if you're talking about this moment, and why the gun debate has emerged with such power at this moment i don't think there is anyway to get around what happened in newtown. you look at the poll numbers, the poll numbers were that most americans just add given up on this topic. they thought nothing could be done, the nra was too influential. now more americans are saying, including republicans and members of the nra it's rational, it makes sense to have strong background checks. bill: you wonder if americans think new gun laws will work. >> some polls have shown that 60-some percent don't know that. >> when you ask about universal background checks it's overwhelming. people think it's a good idea. as i said people who own guns think it's a good idea. i think what people are worried about and what mary catherine is referring to
